In the early morning rush at a Wal-Mart on Black Friday, customers fight over the last X-Box 360 console.

People are so rude nowadays. Is there no respect left at all?

I don't understand the "fighting over stuff" mentality. When the XBox360 Elite came out we had pre-ordered it online and had it shipped directly to the house. No fighting with anybody.

Ha!

A couple of years ago on Black Friday, my Girlfriend at the time went to Wal Mart. She went in the morning, maybe around 10am. She actually went to get a toaster oven, because ours had passed on. She grabbed what was the last one off the shelf, took about 2 steps...and.............
Some heifer in a mumu grabbed it right out of her hands and kept walking! What the heck.
Adrianna said she was so stupified, she did not know what to do! She just let it go, and grabbed another brand, as she was not about to fight over a toaster oven!

And it was still November at the time! Just imagine what kinds of things are going to happen as we get closer to December 25.
